Understanding the business benefits of broadband connectivity at sea is crucial for commercial maritime operations as they consider how to meet their vessels’ growing need for bandwidth. KVH’s upcoming webinar, Dec. 4, is devoted to the topic.
Called “The Benefits of Maritime SATCOM – the Enterprise Ripple Effect,” the webinar addresses the fact that broadband connectivity provides businesses with a competitive weapon to reduce costs, enhance revenues, and drive profitability.
Commercial maritime managers who are putting together business plans for their operation’s SATCOM investment will find the information in the webinar particularly useful. The return on investment (ROI) of a maritime SATCOM system involves many factors, including an awareness of how to manage information logistics and get the most value from broadband on the vessel.
Topics covered in the webinar include key ways that broadband benefits the overall commercial maritime business operation:
• Reducing emissions and saving bunker fuel
• Optimizing voyage planning
• Controlling vessel manning costs
• Reducing administration costs
• Minimizing costly repair visits
• Enhancing onboard security
• Optimizing customer service
The Dec. 4 presentation is the second in KVH’s “Satcom 101 Webinar Series,” which concludes with a third presentation on Jan. 8. For more information about the series (and access to the archived version of the first webinar, which took place in November), click the Register button (top).
